Author, Community Historian and Advocate Arlene Chan speaks about growing up in Toronto's original Chinatown (at Dundas and Elizabeth Streets), Chinese Canadian history (including family experiences with the Head Tax and Chinese Exclusion Act), her remarkable mother Jean Lumb (Restaurateur, Citizenship Judge, Save Chinatown! Activist, and recipient of the Order of Canada, 1976) and her numerous accessible publications for youth and adults that have addressed significant gaps in the presence of the Chinese Canadian narrative in schools, libraries and public discourse. The absence and erasure of communities, cultures and histories in Canada remains a continuing theme of discussion in this ongoing series.
